Over the past year I've had the pleasure of taking many of my closest friends out fishing with extra tackle and strategy in hand but one of them that has been truly a treat is my 71 year old friend Liberty Bill. I took him up to King lake in July to catch his first Cutthroat trout and then he had some medial procedures that took up the next few months. This past weekend was one of his first weekends after he finished them so we ventured up to the inlet at Buttonrock. What a treat to be able to take him out again this year when I thought I might not be able to. The happiness of catching the biggest trout of his life was magical. Take your elders out if you can, when you can. Tight lines y'all.
